Evan Osnos writes "The Fallout in the New Yorker"
"The Fukushima meltdowns scattered nuclear fallout over an area the size of Chicago. Government scientists estimate that the total radiation released on land was about a sixth of the level at Chernobyl.
Unlike the Russians, Japanese authorities warned parents not to give local milk to their children, and they pulled groceries containing small amounts of radiation. Because of such measures, the health consequences of the meltdowns will likely be far smaller than the public imagines..."
MAJIA HERE: GRRRR....
OK LET US START BY STATING THAT IT IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE THAT FUKUSHIMA HAS PRODUCED 1/6TH THE RADIATION OF CHERNOBYL
On June 6th I posted this:
Fukushima, has released 10 times as much (or more) radiation than Chernoby
And it continues to release radioactive steam and water every single day with no end in sight.
UNIT 1 IS UNDENIABLY STILL FISSIONING. It is producing Iodine-131. It has radiation spikes intermittently and it is incredibly radioactive.
Potrblog just detected radiation levels 270 Times Background in St Louis
The EPA is reporting that Yuma's radiation a day or so ago was at 950 CPM for beta. 30 to 60 is normal.

Arnie Gunderson is describing his concerns about the uncontained state of reactor #3 in his latest 6 minute video
AND THE JAPANESE ARE ALLOWING VERY CONTAMINATED FOOD INTO THEIR GROCERY STORIS. Read Fukushima Diary, Enenews, or Blogger Ex-SKF. Even Japan Today and Asahi are reporting on this story.
I posted my call for action a couple of days ago.
